Having grown up in the Devon countryside, I was lucky enough to have a childhood full of moving outside in nature and hiking.
As a nature lover, I pursued work in the environmental sector trying to protect the natural world.
However, like many people I developed an unhealthy lifestyle working long hours in a stressful sedentary job. It was ironic that in trying to make the world a better place, it seemed to entail sacrificing your health. This lifestyle combined with some painful life experiences such as being robbed at knife point and emotional abuse left me burnt out and full of anxiety.
But I had always felt my intuition; an inner call to the mountains and to health and adventure. So I went back to my childhood and spent more time outside in nature and taking care of myself and my body. It was then I started to realise how modern social norms take us out of sync with our natural rhythms and is coinciding with the decline in our health and the environment.
Connecting with nature and having outdoor adventures is the best therapy. I strongly believe the world would be a better place if we connect with nature and mountains more than screens.
My mission is to share my passion for fitness and adventure. To inspire and prepare you to not just conquer your hiking adventure, but ignite a fire in you to discover more areas in which you can improve physically and mentally.
